My husband and I just passed the half a million mark! I am 36 and he is 34.
A total of 50.2% of our income goes into retirement (36% of our own income, plus our university employer gives us 14.2% of our salaries).
We're contributing to:
- two 457(b) accounts (maxed)
- two Roth IRAs (maxed)
- one HSA (maxed) (soon to be two HSAs)
- part of one 403(b)
The 14.2% of our salaries goes to our 401(a) accounts which is standard for all professional employees here.
I like to celebrate anything and everything. This month marks our 6 month wedding anniversary as well. The plan is to go to out to dinner in the big city and redeem an old REI gift card someone gave us (even though we eloped).
(Net worth is probably in the $550,000 mark with the house.)
